About me

Experienced and established Person Centred Individual and Couples Counsellor offering online appointments (Skype/Zoom) You may want help with the emotional impact of Covid and the restrictions, or you may have a long-standing or prior issue that you do not want to delay discussing.

As well as my initial core training and qualification in Person Centred Counselling (2000) I am additionally qualified in Sex and Relationship therapy, and I have an interest and substantial training in working with those who want to discuss the impact of Boarding School on the present day.

I have been working with individuals since 1996 and with couples since 2011. I am passionate about helping people tap back into their own resources in order to solve problems and make changes. Perhaps you are feeling flat, low, worried, stressed or desperate. Maybe you are having difficulty in a relationship, or with your work, or perhaps you are unhappy about the quality or direction of your life.

You are free to discuss anything with me that concerns or worries you, whether it is an individual issue, relationship issue or family issue; whether your concern is depression, generalised anxiety, panic attacks, stress, or a work related issue; anger or anger management, bereavement, separation and divorce, trauma, childhood related issues and boarding school issues, addiction, sexuality or sexual identity, or perhaps you have an interest in personal development.

I work with individuals and couples on a long or short term basis. I support couples via couple counselling at any stage of their relationship to improve communication, negotiation and compromise, to develop intimacy, throughout separation and divorce, recovery from affairs and betrayals, sexual differences and difficulties. I work with couples to understand and resolve the impact of  bereavement, trauma, childhood related issues, addiction, depression, work related stress, infertility, family related issues and cultural differences. I see couples of every sexual and gender orientation.

I have worked since 1996 primarily in independent practice, as well as having had some experience within the NHS and voluntary sector (bereavement, alcohol, and with survivors of sexual abuse and their families).


I offer clinical supervision to experienced and trainee counsellors on an individual basis and within group settings.

I offer a respectful, sensitive, honest and empathic approach.

Do please feel free to call me on 07732607818 if you have any questions or for an brief exploratory chat. If I do not pick up, leave a message with your name and a contact number. Let me know when its NOT ok to call back. Or email me on diane@citypsychotherapy.london or via the site.
